New England is well known for its signature winter scenery and Massachusetts offers some of the best in the region.

From Boston’s Public Garden after a fresh snow dusting to western Massachusetts landscapes that look like they came straight out of a Norman Rockwell painting, the chilly months can be counted on to cast Massachusetts in a new and often picturesque light.

For your viewing pleasure, here are 10 Massachusetts winter landscapes, which you can enjoy whether you’re bundling up for an outside adventure or staying in and staying warm on the couch. Take a look:

    Your description of the scene in Nantucket is incorrect, it is not the “Holiday Stroll” but rather the Christmas Stroll. And yes, those trees in the picture are in fact Christmas trees, not Holiday trees. Christmas, it is the reason for the season.
